Wigan Athletics’ Victor Moses has become the first foreign-based player to hit the Super Eagles camp ahead of the busy schedule of qualifiers for the Nations Cup and World Cup 2014.
Moses breezed into the team’s temporary abode at Excel Oriental in Lagos, on time for the team’s departure for Calabar, where it will prosecute its home games against Namibia and Rwanda.
When asked about his next point of call in club football, as a result of the rash of interest on him by various Premier League clubs, Moses merely smiled away the question and concentrated on his breakfast.
Meanwhile, newly appointed Camp Commandant of the national team, Lt Col Rabiu Yandoto, has promised Nigerians that he would carry out his duties to the best of his abilities by ensuring excellent discipline in the team’s camp.
Yandoto, whose first official assignment was the trip to Peru, said he has made observations about the workings of the team and has been able to study the philosophy of Head Coach Stephen Keshi, and is certain that discipline under him will not be compromised.
Eagles Media Officer, Ben Alaiya quotes Yandoto as saying: “At all times, I will liaise with the Head Coach and all other necessary functionaries of the national team, to ensure that we up the level of discipline in the national camp so as to be able to achieve the result we want to in the team.”
